Do you have the exact language to put this into context?
There is no specific legal definition that would apply in a case like this so the judge would make a determination based on context.
As I said, there is no specific legal definition. If he simply said "all my possessions" and nothing else then the court would find that it included all of his property. However, if he identified some kinds of property specifically and just ended up with a final sentence that said "and all other possessions" the court would most likely find that it was meant to include only personal possessions.
Do you have the exact language used throughout the document?
If that is all it is then it is likely going to include everything he owned.
